I don't know anything about Long tractors, but there have been a rash of reports of long engine problems (blowby) in the Long forum lately. You might check those posts out if you haven't already.

I have owned a long farm-trac for 5 years and have had no problems..I think most of the problems people were having with blow by was caused by using a starting fluid (ether).

The Long Farmtrac (formerly Landtrac) 360 DTC is a very nice tractor built by LG in Korea and features a 4 cylinder Mitsubishi diesel. I have just signed up with Long as a dealer and prior to doing so, read most of the posts I could find. There are some posts regarding engine damage onLong tractors (sold by Long as Longtrac as opposed to Farmtrac)which are of eastern european origin. It is true that most of those engine problems seemed to have been reported by confessed either users (on the tractors, not the owners!). The model you are looking at is a completely different tractor.

 long 360 dtc...a good buy??

I had researched many of the "popular" tractor brands while searching to upgrade from my Kubota. I decided on a Long tractor however couldn't afford the price of a new one with all the attachments that I also needed. I found a used 99 landtrac 360DTC that needed some work, as the former owner beat the daylights out of it. The tractor was still usable and ran and worked like a raped ape. I had to replace the clutch and 2 gears in the gearbox. It runs even better now. My opinion is that the power and lift capacity ratings are underestimated, I saved about $10000 from a new tractor and had to put $2500 into it for the clutch and gears. One thing I did find odd is that most of the Long dealers have never worked on these tractors, aside from normal maintenance. I thought they were pulling my leg, but I haven't had any problems since. I would definitely buy another if I ever needed it.
